This shoot was such a special shoot that was filled with so much love and emotion that I can’t actually fully describe it. Lizelle, wow where do I begin.. This amazing woman and mother to her precious son, Grayson has had such a journey and been so amazingly brave overcoming all she has gone through. Lizelle has defeated THREE different types of cancers since 1996 and is currently fighting this disease yet again. Having lost my own brother to non- hodgkin’s lymphoma, one of the cancers Lizelle has herself had, this really was close to my heart. Coupled with the fact that Lizelle is also a single mom and an amazing one at that! I too have been through that journey and know how my own son is everything to me too. So when I met with her and Grayson I was deeply moved to be able to photograph the wonderful connection and bond they both share and capture these special photos of them both just enjoying being together in a beautiful spot with a stunning sunset, (one of Lizelle’s favourite things) Lizelle does alot of campaigning and is passionately involved in Cancervive. An absolute gem of a person and a true warrior, Lizelle you are so strong and will beat this awful disease I am sure of it! Thank you for allowing me to be part of this journey by taking these photos for you x
